 «… imagination embraces the entire world,
and all there ever will be to know and understand.
– Albert Einstein

Some time ago, I read that artists and scientists are not too different from each other. Both use trial-and-error, need patience, apply imagination, are friends with failure, possess curiosity and draw on creativity. I agree.

We, artists, are curious people, and curious people always ask questions and search for answers in our always actives minds. When something awakens our curiosity, our mind anticipates new ideas related to it. When the ideas come we will soon be inspired to act accordingly.

Curious artists are able to see new worlds and possibilities normally not visible for everybody. We dig deeper beneath the surface of what is around us, and try to be open to learn, unlearn, and relearn.

Polos Sincronizados por Pablo Montes
Synchronized -Poles, painting by Pablo Montes

I’m always asking questions relentlessly to myself about everything around me. For me, curiosity creates possibilities.

My acrylic on canvas, Synchronized Poles, came into being when I was thinking about how many universes are there and how little we know about them. I was reflecting on the astral plane, the spiritual universe, the subatomic universe, and the cosmos in the human mind.

Some of these universes influence a person’s personality and moods. In my painting, the energy flows from North to South in a change of color. As a cool color, the blue in the South gives asense of calm and quiet, while the warmth colors in the North inspire joy..

This painting belongs to my Energy series. Synchronized Poles was featured on “Resonances”, my 2016 exhibition at the Museum of The Americas in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
